Entry details

The abseil is a staggering 400 feet descent on the outside of the building - a difficult but exhilarating challenge! 

The National Lift Tower was originally built to test lifts. Now, along with other resources such as emergency escape system tests, the tower hosts a permanent abseil. Featuring 'The Big One' on the exterior of the building, as well as smaller abseils at 150-200 feet in the interior of the tower. 

Following the success of this event in the recent years, we are looking for new recruits for to take 'The Big One' abseil challenge on together in 2021. Located in Northampton, with easy access from the M1 and only a 15 minute walk from the nearest train station - this unique abseil is ideal for our supporters across the UK.
